However, alternately, you may just use your kitchen knife in slicing your sweet potatoes just like I did.

Place the sliced potatoes in the air fryer basket and air fry for 10-12 minutes at 392F or 200C. Shake the basket of the air fryer every about 3 minutes to cook evenly the sweet potato chips.

You can, but it will not be as crispy with the one with oil. It will turn out a little dry as well.

Yes, absolutely. I personally love sweet potato chips with the skin on. But my kiddie requested to peel it off for her so I gave in.
Having the skin on adds fiber to this chips and it is also delicious.
